Description

My husband will no longer order steak in a restaurant because he swears he can get a better steak at home due to this marinade. It’s also a big hit at the fire hall where he works. We like it with strip loins but it works with flank or other beef steak. NOTE: Tasty Kitchen member Amanda tried it on chicken and says “it rocks”.

Ingredients

  • ½ cups Olive Oil
  • ¼ cups Brown Sugar
  • 4 cloves Garlic, Peeled And Halved
  • 3 Tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar
  • 3 teaspoons Montreal Steak Spice
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Fresh Ginger, Grated
  • ½ cups Teriyaki Sauce (I Use Kikkoman)
  • 4 whole Steaks (strip Loins, Flank Or Other)

Preparation

Combine ingredients in a large Ziploc bag (don’t be like me—make sure there are no holes in the bag!), close bag and squeeze to mix the ingredients.

Add 4 medium striploin steaks (or your choice of beef steak) to the bag and seal. Place in the refrigerator for 1 hour or even overnight to marinate and then grill the steaks as you normally would.

Steaks can be frozen in the marinade as well, just defrost them in the refrigerator and grill. Recipe can also be doubled to increase the amount of marinade. Enjoy!

This recipe looks awesome! It has been my experience that anything with that Montreal Seasoning is absolutely AMAZING! That, along with the fresh ginger, makes me long for the grilling days of summer even more! Will def have to try this!

We used your recipe today on chicken and it was wonderful. The only thing we deviated on was using Wildtree Ranchers Steak Rub in place of the Montreal Steak Spice. We had the chicken on pizza and I swear it was the best pizza ever.

I’m in the minority here, but we did not care for this. It may be that we like the taste of the meat instead of marinade. You really couldn’t tell there was meat flavor. It was very strong and overpowered the flavor of the steaks. If you really like marinade or steak sauce with your meat you may love this, as so many do. My kids wouldn’t eat it and I threw over half of my steak away. That never happens around here. :)

I made this last weekend and fed a couple of firefighters. We all LOVED it! The steaks were so tender and full of flavor. I was not at all surprised because this recipe had so many 5 mitt ratings. Great recipe – thanks for sharing!
